thank you, I was thinking after I typed my question,
that metalua would be excellent for this, but has a learning
curve (I think in 2-3 days with your help I will get a prototype
going :-) ).

I had difficulties about a month ago getting it to 
work on windows (I compiled with VS 2005), you mentioned at the time
that you are working on the improved version (as far as
installation/compilation at least). Did you get at least some of your
updates done?
